TRAZOM
2nd Mozartweek Mannheim,
National Opera, Mannheim

 

Oper Mannheim

 

As had already happened in 2001, the typographical material of the word “Trazom”, Mozart spelled backwards, provided the initial idea.
The interplay of letters and punctuation marks made it possible to take various aspects into account in terms of form and subject matter. Accumulation, inversion, combination and variations on the bracket modules (alone and in combination with the letter logos) take up and work with both the ornamentally playful element as well as the rigidity, serially structured form of BAROCK as a basic theme.

The letter were shaken like dice, shut in and out by the brackets, separated, pushed away or regrouped. Anagrams of the six letters appeared and opened up new links in terms of content. The rhythm of the timetable for the nearby trams, as a pulsating link with the whole city, was co–ordinated with the animations time loop.
